The Morganist-Sablinist Empire of Greater Pittsburgh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Cassandria I with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.039 billion Pittsburghers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pittsburgh. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pittsburghian economy, worth a remarkable 2,828 trillion Golden Morgan Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 234,984 Golden Morgan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Air Greater Pittsburgh is rumored to receive more government funding than the Pittsburghian Air Force, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Pittsburgh's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Greater Pittsburgh is ranked 51,842nd in the world and 1,634th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 8,227.56 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
